Overboard | 2018 | PG-13 | - 5.3.4

A widow (Anna Faris) with three children struggles to make ends meet and care for her children while preparing for a nursing exam. When a very disagreeable wealthy man (Eugenio Derbez) wakes up on a beach with amnesia, she convinces him that he's her husband, thinking it will be a perfect opportunity to get both help and revenge. Also with John Hannah, Eva Longoria, Emily Maddison, Swoosie Kurtz, Josh Segarra and Mel Rodriguez. Directed by Rob Greenberg. Several lines of dialogue are spoken in Spanish with English subtitles; a couple of phrases are spoken in French without translation or subtitles. [1:52]

Several men talk about how long it has been since they had sex with their wives. A woman remarks to a man about needing to watch sports like "real men" instead of soap operas.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
